Could you compile with debugging enabled (i.e. -g), so that you can
use the debugger where to see where it is hanging?
./configure --cflags -g --compiler cc
Same problem: src/xemacs hangs, can't be kill -KILL'ed. dde won't even
start (complaining about a bad virtual address), just as with -O.
Anything else to try?
21.1.1 (the only real change was the version number): Same problem. Also
failed with --dynamic=yes.
21.0.67. (Very verbose) Without dynamic: failed. With --dynamic=yes:
I'll have to go and check out some of the recent build successes more
It may also be an OS patch-level problem. We've had some difficulties
between purify and dld (patches), though kill -9 always worked.
